Replacement Tires

Hello to everyone, and we need some help once again.
We have decided to replace the tires on our 2017 29RKS. They are
St 225/75R15, and our unit weights about 6700 dry.

Looking for suggestions on brand and model? And sidewall recommendations

Thanks as always

Tom and Kathy

Goodyear Endurance tires are new so no long term data yet, but several of us have them. I have about 5,000mi on ours so far and I am very pleased so far.

I went to simpletire.com found the tires i wanted. I went with a load D I was replacing C rated. I contacted the local tire store (Discount tire) and they matched the price but just used their brand tires instead I forget the brand right now but have had a few trips with them and have no complaints. Not really a tire recommendation but a money saver for sure! Only paid $40/tire

I went with Maxxis and am very happy. I upgraded to load range E and feel much better about my tow experience. I sold my stock Raniers on Craigslist to offset the cost. Recovers almost half the cost of the new tires...

We have Endurance tires. Second for me would be Maxxis. And I try to go up a load rating if I can.

Started looking around today. Went to 3 different stores. Kal tire, want to sell me carlisle brand tires 820.00 for 5 tires installed not sure about the brand. Asked about sailun but apparently they don't make a 205/75r 15. Canadian tire...useless gave me a piece of paper only tire they carried was also a carlisle but do not stock. Was told to go to rv dealer for tires. Costco.. said they only sold a winter tire in that size...lol ok. Saga continues. Will keep you posted. Any reviews on carlisle?

You are right the top option is Maxxis for your tire size in a load range D $125/tire

We can also recommend the Voracio STR load range D $105/tire

Second quote
Goodyear Assurance 8 ply $175 each

Carlisle HD 8ply $135 each

These Prices include the install with valve stem replacement.

Only thing on top is the government adf and taxes.


Leaning towards the maxxis

Will your rims accept 225/75-15 tires?
